RZA on Wu-Tang Clan: "The chemistry's not all that good"
« on: December 30, 2014, 03:02:16 PM »
Following the release of Wu-Tang Clan’s A Better Tomorrow album this month, frontman RZA spoke with NME to discuss the much-publicized opposition he faced from various Wu members during the making of the project.

“I'll level with you, the chemistry's not all that good right now," RZA says. "We've all done this long enough to know this process isn't just like, you make an album, then that's that. It's like a presidential campaign. You don't just make the policies then sit back. You create your platform, then you gotta take it to out to the people…It's like there's an energy in the group that stops people enjoying their own success. They gotta sabotage it."

Later in the conversation, RZA likened the album to a child that’s born “with one arm,” saying, “You gonna love that child, make the best out of that situation and help it have the best life it can."

RZA also spoke on the purpose of the newly released album.

"The goal was always to change hearts and touch souls, man,” RZA says. “It's like that from the minute you get it in your hands, from the cover. That's an imagined city where everyone's culture is respected. We got the Eiffel Tower. The Hollywood Hills. We got you guys' wheel. It hit me that I thought the world had got better. But really, it had just got better for me, not for others.”

I remember hearing the same stuff around when 8 Diagrams was coming out, can't say it's surprising. Still gotta check the album though.

Listening to this a few years later I have to say I appreciate it more. There’s some filler in there and I’m not feeling the whiny r&b like singing that’s plagued the album. Funny RZA was clowning rappers for being too R&b back on Wu Tang Forever.

Tracks like Pioneers of the Frontier and Necklace are classic Wu tracks. Rae and ghostface are kinda hoes for not being colllaborative but RZA also doesn’t have the same edge he had on the boards back in the 90s so you can’t be too mad at them. As usual Method Man outshines everyone.
